“We want to shine a light on unsafe practices and motivate employers to do a better job of protecting workers,” said Marcy Goldstein-Gelb, the co-executive director of San Diego-based National COSH. “Workers continue to die on the job at tragic levels. Most of these deaths and injuries could have been prevented with well-known basic safety measures.”
